Today’s post is part of a Choose Your Own Story written and hosted by T. Isenhoff and M. Isenhoff on their Storyboys blog. T. is in 3rd grade, and M. is in 6th grade. This story was their winter homeschool project. Travel over to their blog first to start at the beginning, the story will lead you back here. Have fun!




Cursed Mansion

The footsteps stopped right in front of the sideboard door. “Hey!” came a shout. “Someone stole my Oreos.”
“We’re dead meat,” Ed whispered.
“Come on, this way.” Tony led them down the black tunnel. His light barely cut through the darkness. Spider webs brushed against their hair. The tunnel widened enough to stand upright, but the air smelled dank and moldy.
They walked a long way. “I think we’re safe,” Tony muttered. There was no sound of pursuit. “We gave Meatloaf the slip.”
“And I still have his Oreos,” Ed snickered.
“But where are we?” Tony asked.
“Maybe we better go back the way we came,” Ed suggested.
They started back for the kitchen and met a brick wall. “This wasn’t here before. Did we turn off somewhere?” Tony asked.
“I don’t remember any turnoffs,” Ed said.
“Well, we must have gone wrong somewhere. Let’s turn around.”
But only a few minutes’ walk brought them to a wall with a tunnel leading to the left and another to the right.”
“I know we haven’t seen this before,” Ed mumbled. “It’s a maze down here.”
“A magical maze,” Tony glowered. “It’s shifting and changing on us.”
“We have to keep going,” Ed said. “We don’t have any other choice.”
They turned left and followed the dark passage. Then the tunnel split again. And again. And again. Eventually, the Oreos ran out, and the batteries in the flashlights died.
Ed and Tony were never heard from again.

    Oh, darn, the Oreos ran out! Poor Ed and Tony. My heart goes out to them. Now I’m going back to see what happens when I click on the other choices! This is soooooo much fun!
